one of my favorites

"Cardamom. I love this oil intensely. Firstly, it smells heavenly. It is deeply warming and sensual. It tingles on the tongue and so many other places I use it with 1 drop of cape chamomile, immortelle and a tsp of honey for a truly euphoric, sensual experience. Cardamom is nice massaged on my tummy and for breathing in. It works so effectively. It is good for those cold nights. Put 1 drop on both foot and wrap them in thick socks. Your feet will be warm in no time (and smelling good too) "

The plant energy of our Cardamom Essential Oil draws upon thousand years of use. Referenced on clay tablets of Sumeria, enjoyed by the ancient Greeks and Romans as a fragrant perfume, cardamom oil also carries a charged, freshening energy. The ancient Egyptians used cardamom to freshen their mouths while the Vikings used the fragrant spice in their cooking and wine making.

 

Our Cardamom Essential Oil is organically sourced from wild plants of Costa Rica, where the spice grows in fragrant green pods. Cardamom is one of the most luxurious, sought-after spices in the world. Enjoyed in chai and in Saudi Arabia, cardamom coffee is the most popular drink in the entire country, with the spice being the key ingredient to what we now think of as “Arabian Coffee.”

 

Ancient Indian Brahmanic scriptures enlisted cardamom for imbalances, including bad breath. Many modern Indians still chew cardamom wrapped in betel nut leaves to juice digestion and freshen breath after a meal. With its invigorating and mood-boosting aroma, it melts muscles and chimes minds as it lifts spirits.

 

Cardamom’s seed pods are like green diamonds of resilient strength that is lovely as a fragrance or enjoyed in a drop in honey. These sweet and spicy gems inspire with their exotic aroma emitting a clarion call that supports action attuned to the frequency of clarity.

 

“Cardamom is pleasanter of savour and smell with some small bitterness.”

 Galen, Seventh Book of Simples, circa 15th century

 

“When the winter has settled us, we breathe in vinegar and cardamom, and consider the value of rain.” Liz Lefroy

 

“At the time Sumerian society was based on matriarchal principles… The Asu [female herbalists] probably used distilled plants essences – we can suggest this because a clay distillation vessel dating back 5500 BCE was found at a Sumerian grave site, from this we can begin to see how aromatics such as cardamom, through the Sumerians, became used by all of the other cultures they influenced.”
